Toyguide Update: Force Link Return of the Jedi Battle 3pk (Target Exclusive)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the Target Exclusive 3.75″ Force Link Return of the Jedi Battle Pack Set.

PROS:  Three all new figures in one 3.75″ battle pack?! Releases like that come too few and far between and this one excels. Both Emperor Palpatine and Luke benefit greatly from having two additional points of articulation (wrists) and the inclusion of the swappable force lightning hands is perfect. The sculpting for The Emperor shines above the other two figures as the texture captured in his robe harkens back to the detail applied to figures from The Phantom Menace. The results yield one of the best 3.75″ Emperor figure ever produced. Luke is not too shabby either as his proportions are nicely captured as well as the classic ROTJ Hamill likeness. Rounding out the set is the Royal Guard, which again is an excellent example of the character and I’d love to get my hands on a few more. Force Link phases are what you’d expect – classic lines from ROTJ and Palpatine also has one from The Phantom Menace. The set is also priced well for an exclusive that includes 3 new figures.

CONS: None to speak of really other than the ERG’s limited Force Link effects and maybe the Luke’s hair color choice.

Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.

Forces of Destiny UPCs, DPCIs and SKUs Updated

We have updated the Master UPC/DPCI/SKU List of products that we’re tracking for 2017-2018 with products from Hasbro’s Forces of Destiny line. There is nothing new (yet) in terms of product but we have added the relevant UPCs, Target DPCIs and Walmart SKUs to the list for Ahsoka Tano, Padmé Amidala, and the Rey of Jakku and Kylo Ren Set.

Target Exclusive Force Link Return of the Jedi 3 pk Hitting Stores Too

If you caught my Tweet earlier this morning, you saw that I posted that the Target Exclusive ROTJ 3 packs are in stock in the Seattle area  – then BAM! – my brother-in-law sends photographic proof from a Target in Wilsonville, Oregon. Looks like the Pacific Northwest is your best bet in finding these in store right now.

DPCI: 087-06-8394 for those that use Brickseek

Target Gets Wise To Brickseek Tracking

It looks like Target has taken steps to thwart collectors that use Brickseek.com to track inventory and find the lowest prices in their respective areas. Now when you enter a DPCI or UPC, it simply states “in stock” or “out of stock” and lists ” N.A.” for the pricing. I guess we’ll have to see of this is a temporary or permanent update. Walmart inventory tracking appears to not be effected. Yet.

Thanks to @sw_up_wir20 for the heads-up.
